Since visiting Cherokee Street for the first time, I never would’ve thought that I’d be back for their biggest event of the year – Cinco de Mayo celebration! Thanks to some persuasion from Kara, I ended checking out the festivities last Saturday instead of studying for finals…and I don’t regret that decision one bit. It was lively, crowded, colorful, festive. Come walk through it with me…
Plenty of vendors & food booths were set up along the street. What a feast for the stomach and eyes:
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, then you’d know that my big event this month was the spring break California road trip! All of the posts from this trip are listed below, as well as other shenanigans from the month of March.
First, I continued eating my way around St. Louis:
Then began the epic California road trip:
First off, San Francisco’s Chinatown!
Making the most out of our last day in SF!
Movin’ on to Monterey
Some of the clearest, most beautiful, blue waters I’ve seen
I. Loved. These. Mountains!
Monthly media intake:
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (OMG I love this show!! It makes me so happy)
Phewww, hope those were enough posts to keep you busy reading for a while! Now it’s time for me to finish the home stretch (4 more weeks of class, what?!) until I graduate. Thus, I’m trying to make the most of my time left in St. Louis. Any St. Louis locals have suggestions for what to eat/see/do?
Thanks for reading!
Right next to the LA Arts District was the Little Tokyo neighborhood. It was convenient how close everything was in downtown LA! As a result, eating good sushi for lunch (our last meal in California!) was a must.
Since the small town Carmel was only 15 minutes away from Monterey, we of course, had to stop by. It’s only 1 square mile – the perfect size to just walk around and explore. However, we learned the hard way that all shops closed at 5 pm (#beachtownproblems), so we were only able to window shop. Looking on the bright side, though, we pretty much got the entire place to ourselves!
